AFCB Vital have launched a competition to win AFC Bournemouth midfielder Shaun MacDonald`s match worn shirt from last season`s League One promotion winning campaign.
This shirt has been signed by the AFC Bournemouth squad and raffle tickets cost just £10.
The shirt was kindly donated by MacDonald to Steve Rees aka Reeco, who originally recommended him for a trial with Swansea`s Centre of Excellence when MacDonald was a promising Under 11.
Reeco then contacted AFCB Vital to launch the raffle in order to raise money for a very worthy cause back in MacDonald`s home city of Swansea.
Reeco told AFCB Vital…
‘I do my fair share of helping charities, organisations and individuals raise funds for special causes and I am very good friend with a current Bournemouth Legend Shaun MacDonald.
‘I spoke to Shaun recently about my intention to raise some funds for the most well deserved cause I have ever raised funds for, at the moment it needs to be kept under wraps as it’s a surprise, but I have told Shaun who will benefit from this fundraiser and he is happy to help me, I could not have done this without Shaun.’
‘Shaun said he would give me something special and boy he was not wrong. I know what this last season`s Bournemouth Squad Signed Shirt means to Shaun and he is happy to endorse what I am doing.’
AFC Bournemouth midfielder Shaun MacDonald told AFCB Vital…
‘I am donating my shirt to hopefully raise some money for a very special cause. It`s very personal to me and I would like to put a few smiles on people`s faces and hopefully this can!’
As part of the same fundraiser, Reeco is also auctioning off two Swansea City player shirts and intends to get both Lee Trundle and Shaun MacDonald together to complete the presentation once all funds have been received.
Reeco continued: ‘My intention with your help, is to sell as many £10 tickets as possible to raffle off this very special AFC Bournemouth shirt.
‘When all the funds are in at the end of October. I will then organise the draw and presentation at the same time to coincide with Shaun’s visit back to Swansea to see his family in November.
